Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Alex and Mallory from A Cold Dark Place are getting married! I don't know these characters, but I still enjoyed their story as if I had. The romance is there, but there is also suspense and they were combined in the right way. I enjoyed the book, even if I was worried that Alex wouldn't make it to his wedding. The book was good. I wish Jane had gotten together with her man in this book, but I guess that some good things have to happen in the next book. I wonder whose story is going to be.

So far, I am very happy with the series. This is my fourth book, but the author has gotten another fan and I'll keep reading her books. Jane's part of the plot could have been very heavy, but it was balanced and it added to the goodness of A cold dark promise. The characters have been set up nicely and I got the family feeling while I was reading the book. I was a little disappointed to see that Mallory didn't share her point of view as much as some other characters had, but I guess she said her piece at the right time. I am very happy with the way everything played out and I hope the author plans to release the next book soon, hopefully with a subplot about a birth.
